The Social Services Agency (SSA) continues to fund emergency food distribution sites countywide. Since August 2020, SSA has dedicated $47 million dollars of CARES Act funds toward supporting the community. SSA has contracted with over 20+ agencies to provide critical services to individuals and families most in need.
The two emergency food distribution sites listed below will continue operating through June 2021. All other contracted sites are receiving funding through the end of March 2021. Funding extensions are contingent on additional federal funds.
The pre-packaged emergency food bags, boxes and/or produce are distributed on a first come, first served basis. No walk-ups are permitted. Masks must be worn by customers.
Days and hours of operation are contingent upon weather.
